Government Affairs

 

The Southern Arizona Lodging and Resort Association monitors a variety of local, city, county and state governmental issues with a potential to impact our hotels, employees or industry as a whole. In partnership with Visit Tucson, the Arizona Hotel & Lodging Association, the Arizona Office of Tourism, the Arizona Tourism Alliance and countless other partners, we stay abreast of current issues and can quickly mobilize our members for action when necessary.

As one of Southern Arizona’s and the state’s largest employers and tax generators, hotels and resorts are often the first to feel the impacts of government decisions and, therefore, it’s our responsibility to educate our elected officials on how their decisions could or would impact the visitor experience.

Members interested in participating in these efforts should request to join SALARA’s Government Affairs Committee.  Email Cathy Wagner at cathy@salara.org to volunteer for this committee.
